The Casual Black Alexander Wang Suit

Dear Silvergirl,

This Alexander Wang ponte jacket and matching skirt are great pieces because they’re a little bit structured yet still very comfortable.

I was in a bit of a rush to get out the door, so I didn’t take many photos. I’ve been favoring a lot of minimalistic all black looks lately and softening them up with my curly hair. They’re more at home in New York than here amongst the trees, but I wear them anyway. I also walk around the neighborhood in my heels and people look at me oddly. Oh well. I won’t give them up, although I do wear my flat boots if I have to go any appreciable distance.

I’m carrying my Coach bag (as usual) and wearing my T by Alexander wang jacket and skirt, Laugh Cry Repeat by AZFN shirt, HUE tights, and MIA ankle boots.

How To Take Nonchalant Outfit Photos

Last week, Mia told me she likes my facing-away from the camera photos. So this week I give you Three Easy Poses for Not Facing the Camera:

(1) Your basic stand there and ponder the shrubbery. Resist the urge to turn around! Actually ponder the shrubbery if it helps. And remember to relax and drop your shoulders.

(2) The angle. Position yourself at a slight angle with one shoulder closer to the camera. Good for close up photos of backs of dresses, shirts, etc. and of handbags.

(3) The sideways walking shot with a twist– instead of looking at the camera look down or look over the shoulder farthest from the camera. Don’t actually walk anywhere or your image may be out of focus. Just pretend.

If you try a pose from my silly little guide let me know!

I’m wearing my T by Alexander Wang jacket from the sample sale, LOFT belt, I forget who makes the dress, Coach bag (vintage), and MIA ankle boots (
